As law enforcement raced to a Klamath home this morning in response to a 911 call, a man broke into the residence on Gensaw Road in Klamath and killed the person inside, said Del Norte County Sheriff Commander Bill Steven. According to Steven, about 9 a.m. Sunday, the resident called 911 saying that a man was attempting to break into the home he was in. He said that the man attempting to break in had a knife.
“In the time it took to get there,” Steven said, “the person gained entry to the house and reporting party was deceased.”
Steven said, “One of our deputies and a CHP officer got on scene and caught the suspect as he was leaving and placed him under arrest.”
